A key area of concern for manufacture and research organisations is storage of refrigerated stock: losses arising from a change in controlled environment (malfunction or breakdown of fridges or freezers, dewars running dry) can be very costly, and an integrated risk management programme is crucial.

Intelligent insurance arrangements can protect you against unexpected loss attributable to breaks in your supply chain.
